    Am i the only one that worries about buying genuine fluids online? I look at amazon and a lot of the fluids like honda ATF-W1 and oil filters come from sellers not amazon itself same with ebay you never know if the product is genuine.

    The Dealer is telling me I need a transmission and trans axle fluid change at 22K. Isn't that a little early for a new vehicle? the owners manual does not list change out periods like older Honda's used to.

    This is what happens when you have too much time on your hands. Below photo shows the myriad fluids available for our CRVs fresh from the bottle. OK…so the center vial is Mobil-One and not Honda. Specifically, it is 0W/20 Advanced Synthetic.

    It amazes me that honda can build an machine that does not give a warning when the car overheats ! This happened to our 2010 CRV totally lost the engine without warning , a simple thermister wired in series with a light/gauge tied to the ignition would save a lot of grief/expense ! Shame on...

    Hello, I have a 2011 CRV and was wondering if aftermarket fluids for both the transmission and Rear Diff can be used. I realize the manual says to only use Honda brand fluids, but why would they want to put that you could use anything but their fluids! So if anyone knows, what brand/weight...
